Breakfast Creek Green Bridge

Brisbane City Council is building new green bridges across Brisbane which will make it easier to get around our city on foot, by bike or scooter, or by connecting with public transport.  It is set to improve the city’s connectivity by providing more travel options and reducing vehicle traffic.

The new bridges will link Kangaroo Point to the Brisbane CBD, Toowong to West End, St Lucia to West End, as well as a new crossing at Breakfast Creek.

The Breakfast Creek Green Bridge is set to provide an improved walking and riding link between the Lores Bonney Riverwalk and the inner city.  The bridge will connect business and employment opportunities in Newstead, Teneriffe, Fortitude Valley and the City Centre with growing lifestyle precincts including Northshore Hamilton.  Key features include:

  • dedicated pathways for pedestrians and cyclists on the bridge deck and approach pathways, with a minimum width of six metres
  • pause points at the southern and northern bridge approaches, providing an opportunity to enjoy views of Newstead House and the Brisbane River
  • a high-quality landing point in Newstead Park with new signage, rest areas and drinking fountains
  • integrated pathways and landscaping within Newstead Park and Cameron Rocks Reserve

Procurement activities are well underway with three shortlisted tenderers expected to submit tenders for the right to construct the Breakfast Creek Green Bridge in the coming months.  Subject to approvals, Council expects a contract to be awarded and construction of the green bridge to start in early 2022, with expected completion by late 2023.
